The first 1000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

As babies progress into toddlerhood, they continue to require a balanced mix of nutrients to support appropriate growth.

 

Excessive protein intake in infancy and early childhood is linked with later overweight and obesity; research shows the importance of providing the right amount of protein in the diet to help support appropriate growth.3,4

SMA® PRO Growing Up Milk has a protein level of 1.5 g/100 ml.

SMA® PRO Growing Up Milk is suitable for Halal and the powder only is suitable for vegetarians.
